a morass of lurid gun play and equally brutal fisticuffs!
24 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

A truly excellent euro crime from the director of the equally splendid 'A Man Called Magnum' & '7 Hours of Violence'; includes the ever reliable Henry Silva delivering yet another stoic performance as an honorable military officer driven to acts of extreme retribution due to army corruption and an increasingly brutal criminal underworld, (wherever the poor sod goes a random act of extreme violence is never too far behind!) Antonio Sabato is also well cast as the sharp witted belligerent cop with a clear yen for the ol' ultra violence. All in all a much underrated actioner from an excellent director who really should be given more recognition, as the talented chap delivers the goods every time! (includes yet another brilliantly gritty crime jazz score from the masterful Guido & Maurizio de Angelis.) This is vintage euro crime; gonzoid car chase after gonzoid car chase and a morass of lurid gun play and equally brutal fisticuffs.'Violent Policemen' is a worthy title that seriously deserves re-discovery.
